The Federal Road Safety Corps has advised drivers to obey traffic rules in order to reduce road accidents in the country.
The Ogun State Sector Commander of FRSC, Mr. Clement Oladele gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Ota on Monday.
Oladele said that human error is the cause of most road accidents.
He attributed the accident that claimed eight lives and injured 12 people on June 12, at the Sagamu interchange on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway to human error, saying the accident was “avoidable’’.
He lamented that eight returnees from Spain lost their lives in an accident on June 12, 2018 on the same spot.
Oladele said that the victims came back from Spain in the morning of June 12, 2018 and boarded a vehicle going to Benin but had an accident and died on the way to their destination.
“It is really unfortunate that exactly a year, another disaster happened at the same spot.
Oladele advised motorists to shun reckless driving and driving against traffic to avoid unnecessary loss of lives.
